that really is the entire or much of the entire purpose of my speech today, to explain why it is and how it is we need to move away from just talking about what we are up against, to talking about what we're actually for, that we are actually for something and there is something we're after which is very similar to what others want. it is just the way we want to get there is better, proven, has worked, and has worked well. in other words, what we want is for american families to be strong, we want them to prosper, we want them to have economic opportunities to better their circumstances, and we think the very best way of doing that is to allow for a robust voluntary civil society to function within a free-market economy. if you allow those things to happen, that is the condition in which we can flourish. it is important to remember government cannot create these voluntary institutions of civil society. it cannot create them. it has the power to weaken them, it has the power to destroy them, but once they are destroyed, it cannot rebuild them or re-create them.
